Beauty 24 September 2015


Something beautiful is morning, when the stars are still bright but the pale beginning of dawn begins to shimmer on the eastern horizon. The setting sun is equally as breath-taking, taking the worries of the day with it as it sinks and pulls the darkness down to cover up the cooling Earth.sallys camra 392

Riding a mountain trail through aspen and Ponderosa along a cool flowing crick with the blue sky overhead and a soft layer of pine needles and leaves spread out like a carpet on the path. IMG_3680The horse’s hooves crinkling the crisping leaves, releasing the smell of fall.

Snow falling thick and wet through grey skies and covering the bare land with a cold white layer, inviting you out to play and then back inside for some rich hot cocoa. The swish of snow shoes making a path where it seems like no one has ever traveled before this moment.

Hiking through meadows of wildflowers, all yellows, blues, purples and reds with a IMG_3804skittering of tall aspen trees on the borders and coming to rest on the rocks at the edge of the stream wandering down the mountainside.

So much beauty in creation-is it any wonder that our God is an awesome God?
